Meet the Teacher - Roxie Carey
My name is Roxie Carey and Im very excited to say that I’m a new teacher here at AJ’s School Of Dance. My love of performing began as a young girl in Ireland where I trained for many years until I auditioned for Performing Arts Colleges in the U.K. I successfully gained two full scholarships to study here professionally and chose to train at Leicester College of Performing Arts where I received my professional Diploma. My performing experience in England so far includes lead roles in Musicals such as Fame and Sweet Charity. I have also performed in well known conventions, corporate events, and more, as a Dancer and Solo/Group singer. I believe as dancers we should all aim to be the best possible all round performers we can be.
Really excited for what’s to come with you all, and most importantly, Let’s have lots of fun!

What is Commercial Dancing?
Basically, commercial refers to dancing done in concerts, live shows, music videos, movies, industrials, and, obviously, commercials. There are many different styles of dance that can be worked into the commercial category, such as hip hop, jazz, locking, popping, breakdancing, krumping, and more.
